Eeeeeeegh, I kind of feel like this is more of a seafood restaurant than a "tiki" establishment. It's worth a visit if you're in Morro Bay, I guess, but I wouldn't go out of your way like we did. It kind of reminds me of a customized Red Lobster with fresher food & better drinks.

OK, so this place is no Don's, but is pretty much is the only Tiki bar on the Central Coast so it needs to be respected for at least existing where there are no other tiki bars. Earlier reviews said this is a walk-up restaurant only but that's not true, this is a real restaurant/bar.

The decor is definitely on the tiki side; there are tikis located prominently throughout the establishment and a beautiful A-frame entrance with saltwater fish tank. There's a bit of Tommy Bahama style blended in, which kinda dilutes the tiki edge a little, but not a big deal. This place is more tiki than Tommy and is literally located over the water in Morro Bay. No other tiki bar I've ever been to can touch the view here.

The mai tai was their own recipe using some pineapple and other juices which I found to be ok but certainly not on par with Don's superb mai tai.

The staff was friendly and attentive, they created a good vibe. The food was the high point, the menu was full of seafood specialties and the fish and chips were the best I've ever had anywhere.

Overall, I am happy to have a tiki bar like this located near me and will deifinitely be back again and again.

I agree with kon tiki kritik. This is the only semi tiki bar on the central coast. The structure design is definately tiki influence. A frame and such. The inside had tiki stuff in it but it reminded me more of a sports bar then tiki. The drinks were ok.

I live near Morro Bay and I too have had several dinners at the Harbor Hut. The tiki theme is trying to maintain a foothold, but just barely. Great view of the bay at sunset though. Food is good. If they created a few "tiki" themed drinks, I would probably be more of a regular. If anyone on the central coast wants to go in on creating a real tiki bar, I'm in. We need one. This is it for 200 miles!
